The Accuplacer Elementary Algebra exam went really well. I was able to place into my appropriate college algebra class, and I surprised myself with my score even. I had not been in school for years and the courses on MathHelp made jumping back in so much easier. There were so many helpful elements of the course. The instructional videos and the practice exam were instrumental in helping me.

I hadn't practiced math in 7 years, but going through the course helped me place high on my Accuplacer QAS test! I'll be attending University this fall and couldn't have done it without

Your Accuplacer program is great and was such a huge help. I hadn't taken a math class in 30 years and I scored a 267 on the AAF. I liked how each lesson was demonstrated during discussion prior to the exercises. It felt much more like an actual live class, and made things much clearer than other self-paced courses out there. Thanks for making this available!

My daughter used to prepare for the Accuplacer math placement test at her university. The school required a score of 279 on the Quantitative Reasoning test to move on to the Accuplacer AAF. The first time, she took it cold and scored a 270, so she was not able to move on to the AAF test. Then she studied on your site and got a 299 on the QR and a 292 on the AAF test, so she is good to go!Your website is very well planned to maximize results while minimizing time investment. The method that worked best for my daughter was to take the practice quiz for each section and then read explanations or watch videos of the problems she missed. That way she wasn't spending time watching videos on topics she already knew/remembered well. I then had her take the full practice tests once she had gone through all of the videos she needed to. Sometimes she didn't even need to view the videos -- your explanations of answers were sufficient in most cases to tell her what she needed to know, but the videos were very helpful when she needed a bit more explanation/step-by-step instruction. Up until this year, she has always done well in math, but a crummy teacher combined with covid virtual school made this year a very tough year for her, and she has lost a lot of confidence as a result. I hope that seeing how well she can do with a bit of good teaching/support has shown her that she can be successful again in this college calculus course.Overall, I was very impressed with how well your website prepared her for the tests, as evidenced by her scores. I will also use your site as she prepares to take the PSAT next year.

This program was so helpful. I haven't taken a math course in 20 years and needed to refresh before taking the Accuplacer and going back to school. The test went great, I got a 292/300. It was so great to have access to mathhelp to refresh my long dormant math skills. I found the lessons clear and easy to understand. I loved the feature of being able to skip lessons I already knew. The little diagnostic quizzes were great to let me know which lessons I needed to take and which I could skip. Thank you for your work, I found the website to be such a helpful tool! I would recommend to anyone!

I placed into all my classes that I needed to! The Accuplacer course was awesome. A total refresh. I will also be using Mathhelp when I get into my math classes in the fall.

Should you study for the Accuplacer Math Test?

If you’re taking the ACCUPLACER math test soon, it’s key that you study as much as possible to be certain you do well. There’s quite a bit at stake, as you’ll learn shortly. Our ACCUPLACER math study guide can help identify the areas you need to focus on.

More about the ACCUPLACER Math Test

The ACCUPLACER math test was designed by the same organization that creates the SAT exam each year. However, you’ll find that it’s a very different sort of test. For one, it's untimed, which lets you breathe a bit easier as you work your way through the exam. Also, it’s a computer-adaptive test, which means the difficulty of each question will rise and fall as you answer questions. Get one right and the next question is harder. Get one wrong and the next one is easier. Over time, this matches the questions to your skill level, and your final score is a factor of how many questions you answer correctly and their level of difficulty. Some of the math concepts on the exam include:

Fundamental Arithmetic:

  • Operations involving whole numbers and fractions
  • Operations involving decimals and percents
  • Applications and problem solving

Elementary Algebra:

  • Operations involving integers and rational numbers
  • Operations involving algebraic expressions
  • Solving equations, inequalities, and word problems

College-Level Math:

  • Algebraic operations and other algebra operations
  • Coordinate geometry
  • Functions and trigonometry

How are my ACCUPLACER Exam results used?

The results of your ACCUPLACER math test are used by colleges and universities to determine which math courses you’ll need to complete in order to earn your degree. It’s a placement test, and schools use poor performance as an indicator that remedial math classes are required. These classes earn you no credits but you still have to pay for them, which means time and money wasted, and the potential for delayed graduation.

But the greater risk, as reported by the Brookings Institution, is that students required to take remedial classes on the college level are less likely to complete their degree program than similar students not needing remediation. Given the importance of a college education in today’s economy, there’s a lot at stake when taking the ACCUPLACER math test.

How do I study for my ACCUPLACER Math Test?

Our ACCUPLACER math study guide will help. It’s perfectly okay if you’ve forgotten some math concepts and never learned others. This is very common. Our study guide is set up in a very organized way so that you can easily identify areas where you need improvement, and our guided lessons will strengthen your knowledge and boost your performance on test day.

Remember that the ACCUPLACER exam is untimed, so there’s no need to get stressed out when you take your test. Plus you’ll have the confidence that comes from knowing that you’ve done everything you can do to prepare. The MathHelp ACCUPLACER math study guide is your partner in success.

We wish you good luck and a high score!
